Why I missed some writing opportunities.
Yes, of course I poached Chuck Wendig’s brilliance from his article of the exact same name. But, to my credit, I did change my title slightly to reflect my amazing originality.
In a similar fashion to Wendig (God I am a poacher today), when I first came across the term ‘hybrid author’ I pictured something a little less than normal.

It is probably far beyond the time he grew up, he has wasted his own time chasing everything and getting nowhere fast. He had better get used to his own company as this was the only one he would ever have. Some might say be happy you don't have to put up with blah blah … Continue reading Seul, si froid et seul
I literally lose my shit at 1000 flushes per second, and I killed this fucker, he can't do anything, but I still have to pay for it all.
They say the road to Hell is paved with good intentions, that is complete bullshit said by people who know not what Hell truly is. The only distance good intentions will give you is regret, guilt and maybe, just maybe a glimpse of what Hell could be in the most watered down version. One can … Continue reading La Rue
